While the Moon is just leaving your career sector as we move into the new week, this is a chance to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the start. In any week that would be an advantage but even more so when this is Pluto's first full week in retrograde motion here. Still at a standstill but looking back instead of forward, this has been a chance to get your first look back through the rear view mirror. While a clash with Mars over the weekend brought some work/life balance reminders, with Pluto at a standstill there isn't the professional urgency that there has been in the past. In addition, both the Moon and now Pluto's friendly aspect to planets in your income sector is giving you a better sense of where the money is and with it a chance to work smarter. This is a turning point in this professional year, with the Moon having returned at just the right time.
Starting the week with the Moon having just returned to your career sector is always an advantage and until leaving on Wednesday, this will ensure your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled during the critical early days of the week. However, this is no ordinary week, with the Moon returning for both its last visit before Saturn's retrograde turn here and before Jupiter leaves next week. With Saturn slowing down and preparing to stand his ground but Jupiter racing ahead, eager to try as many options on for size as possible, this will give you a better read on both. While Saturn is putting his foot on the brake and Jupiter his foot on the gas they are still working in partnership. Jupiter is exploring the options that Saturn can stay on in order to work on, making them part of the same team but for now, requiring two different approaches. Your gut will tell you when to apply the brake and when to apply the gas.
While it appears to be business as usual on the professional front and even the Moon's return to your career sector on Wednesday is the ordinary visit it makes every two weeks, change is in the air and it is becoming more palpable by the day. When the Moon moves through your career sector from Wednesday to Thursday it will do what it will always do, which is fuel your professional instincts and imagination and bring a chance to check in. While this will reveal that there have been no changes and an alignment with dreamy Neptune will reveal that it is business as usual, that is about to change. This is the Moon's last visit before lucky Jupiter's return next week and there will be clues that can help you to start lining up in front of new doors before they open. It might be business as usual now but it will be anything but when the planets of luck and dreams come together next week.
The Moon's departure from your work sector over the weekend allows you to begin the week with an intuitive read on work and job matters but having had time to unpack some of the messages delivered. Especially when it comes to a growing need to pace yourself but also to factor this into your overall professional needs and priorities, which you are in the final days of defining. It is on Saturday that the dwarf planet Ceres will leave your career sector, not only bringing to a close her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities in four years but finally getting you to a point where it becomes more about the journey. On the job front, apart from a total lunar eclipse later in the month, the forces in play there are those in play for the rest of the year. You will reach that point on the career front when Ceres leaves, with the Moon's return to your career sector on Friday a chance to ensure your professional instincts are sharp as what has been a sprint becomes a marathon.
The week not only begins with the Moon just wrapping up its first visit to your work sector since Pluto's retrograde turn here last week but with Mercury in his last full day in your career sector. It was Mercury's friendly aspect to both the Moon and Pluto over the weekend that has not only left you with a better read on job and career matters and the overlay between the two but through a mix of intuition and logic, imagination and intelligence. Venus will also form a friendly aspect to Pluto before she leaves your career sector over the weekend, further cementing a partnership between new professional and untapped job potential. With the Sun only just reaching the halfway point in his month long visit to your career sector this week and a New Moon next week, things will continue to evolve on both fronts. Meanwhile, a new player enters the field, with Ceres returning to your career sector for her first deep dive into your professional needs and priorities on Saturday.
After last week's lull and the chance this brought for job and career matters to settle, things are firing up again this week but in a whole new way. By Monday it has been 10 days since Mars left your career sector, ending what was at times a fevered and impassioned seven week visit. This gave things a chance to settle last week but also created a firebreak so that when Mercury returns on Tuesday to begin a more strategic phase, it really will feel like a fresh wave. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your work sector on Monday will not only ensure you have an intuitive read on work and job matters when Mercury returns but at a time where there is change in the air on the job front as well. This is the Moon's last visit before Saturn's retrograde turn here later in the month but also before Jupiter leaves next week. This will capture a sense of urgency on the job front that wasn't there before, especially when it comes to exploring the options that Saturn can work on while Jupiter is gone.
The most significant days of the week will be Wednesday and Friday when the Moon makes what should be an ordinary monthly visit to your work sector but instead is anything but. On the job front as well it is business as usual or at least that is what it appears to be on the surface. Yet from the moment the Moon returns on Wednesday it will be clear that something has shifted while by the time it leaves on Friday the change ahead will be palpable. It won't be long after the Moon returns that the first shift will be obvious, moving into a friendly aspect to Mars in your career sector for the first time in two years. Mars has only been here for 12 days by the time the Moon returns and this is just the start of a new surge of energy on the career front. However, by the time the Moon leaves on Friday Jupiter will be just seven days away from his first visit to your work sector in over a decade, with major change just around the corner.
Thanks to the Moon's departure from your income sector over the weekend, you not only start the week with a sharp nose for money but a better sense of job confidence and awareness. As the Moon moved through it moved into a friendly aspect to the remaining three planets in your work sector, giving you a better read on what is still an evolving situation. While it has been two weeks since the Sun left your work sector, it is not until the dwarf planet Ceres leaves on Saturday that you will be ready to commit to the journey ahead. This is Ceres' first visit in four years and she is now in the final days of a mission to update your needs and priorities on the job, something that she began back in February. It is the Moon's return on Friday that will not only ensure you have an intuitive read on work and job matters as Ceres leaves but of the planets staying on that will continue to use this as their blueprint.
The Sun hasn't yet reached the halfway point in his month long visit to your work sector when Mercury leaves on Tuesday but he will have done his job by then. Mercury returned a day before the Sun, ensuring you had your head in the game from the start and now leaves you with the intellectually savvy edge to keep working smarter. However, Mercury's departure means that this is something you can put in your tool belt without a need to keep overthinking things. With Mercury gone, there is a chance to focus more on Venus, ahead of her departure from your work sector over the weekend. Where the Sun is focused on having your eyes open and head out of the sand and Mercury on having your head in the game, Venus is all about listening to your heart. As the planet of money, Venus is also working to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Fortunately, the latter gets a lot of help from Pluto in your income sector this week.
By the time you move into the new week, it has been 10 days since Mars left your work sector and you needed that time to catch your breath and to let things settle. By the time Mercury returns on Tuesday to begin the next phase, an 11 day firebreak has allowed some of the warrior planet's intensity to dial back, creating less chance of whiplash as you begin a more measured approach. Where Mars' approach to work and job matters has been hot and heavy, Mercury's approach is slow and steady but even more so as a retrograde turn later in the month will keep him here until July. Gone is the urgency and instead, there is a chance to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Meanwhile, Venus' return over the weekend will not only bring heart and mind together but will add another string, with her focus more on fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction.
As Mars moves into his second week in your work sector, once again the Moon is making this a good week. Last week it wasn't just the Moon's monthly visit to your career sector but the Full Moon this created that gave Mars a boost during the early days of his first visit to your work sector in two years. While the Moon has moved on, whatever has been triggered by the Full Moon will take weeks to play out while it has already fired up your motivation on the job front. This week it is the Moon's return to your income sector from Wednesday to Friday that not only give you the sharp nose for money needed to work smarter but a friendly aspect will create a boost in confidence on both fronts. With lucky Jupiter returning for his first visit to your income sector in over a decade next week, this is also a taste of things to come. The only thing that you will need to watch as things take off on the job front, is knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
The Moon's departure from your career sector over the weekend allows you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled but also with a download of information to unpack and process. While that is always the case, there is a greater need to take this slowly and to draw this out for as long as possible this time. As the Moon moves through your subconscious will always download information faster than you can process it at the time and over the coming days those messages will slowly make their way to the surface. Especially when you are not overthinking things and in those moments when you can let your mind wander. What makes it important to drag out the process as long as possible is that this was not just the Moon's first visit since the asteroid Juno turned retrograde here but the last before it returns as a total lunar eclipse later in the month.
